A good friend of mine recently asked me to design her CV/resume.
Sharmistha is a copywriter/blogger and wanted a non-traditional look for her resume. While giving me a list of elements to be in the design, she kept the rest open to interpretation. I did not anticipate that this work would make my brain work so much…here are a few thoughts I summarized towards its completion.
1. Can layouts like these add a more personal touch to resumes elevating them from piece of paper to a reflection of yourself?
2. What level of detail is good and when does it become a distraction?
3. Can and should non-designers be encouraged to infuse design in professional documents like cover letters, resumes and CV’s.
here’s the work…created in illustrator. size: A4 sheet.
